A critically endangered endemic frog about 4 cm long, restricted to the Coromandel Peninsula and parts of Waikato. They inhabit wet places under rocks and rotting tree trunks and feed on small insects and grubs at night. These frogs are unusual in not having webbed feet and the adult stage develops in the egg (i.e. no free swimming tadpole.) They produce barely audible squeaks.

New Zealand Geckos are unique in that they carry their eggs inside their bodies and the young are born alive.Green geckos are omnivorous and active by day usually inhabiting forest or scrub.Naultinus species can be uniformly green,lime or yellow;or variously patterned with spots or stripes.Most species are vocal,communicating by chirps,chatters,clicks and squeaks.Each species occurs in localized areas throughout NZ.
Found only in New Zealand waters, the Hoiho, or Yellow-eyed Penguin is probably the worlds rarest penguin. A sedentary species, it seldom swims far from its breeding ground.

New Zealand Fur Seal

The new zealand fur seals are found around the coast of the south island and stewart Island.they can also be found in the north Island and south of Australia,and on the sub Antartic Islands. NZ Fur Seals have two very thick dark brown coats.Their diet consists of fish,squid and octopus.Exploitation by humans of the NZ Fur Seals has ended and this beautiful mammal is now fully protected,hopefully for all time.


The tui,found only in New Zealand, is reknown for its variable, melodious songs. Relatively common in native forests,this honeyeater also lives in bush reserves and suburban gardens.Nectar is the most common food source,but tui also feed on fruits and small insects.Their flight is rapid,noisy,swooping and undulating and these aerial acrobatics easily identify the tui as does the tuft of white feathers at its throat.

Tuatara are neither lizard or dinosaur-just an ancient New Zealander.They originated at the same time as dinosaurs.They belong to an ancient reptile group and are the only member to survive. Tuatara is Maori for spiny back,a feature that is easily seen.There are two recognised species,the common Tuatara and Brothers island Tuatara. Today tuatara are found only on small islands and mainland island sancutuaries.Tuatara can live to be 100 years or more.
PARADISE SHELDUCK (We now have a male )
Paradise Shelduck are the largest duck in New Zealand. The male has a black head and dark body,while the female has a white head and orange brown body.Distributed throughout New Zealand they are often seen in pairs on farmland and other open areas especially around ponds and lakes.The alarm call of the male is a deep "ZONK-ZONK" while the female call is a shrill "zeek-zeek".
The saddleback,found only in New Zealand,is one of three wattlebird species that include the kokako and extinct huia.It inhabits forest and thick scrub.often nesting and roosting near the ground where it is vulnerable to predators.Once widespread through New Zealand,all populations are now confined to the islands.
The black robin,endemic to the Chatham islands east of Christchurch,is one of the worlds rarest birds.It was saved from extinction by intensive conservation management and cross-fostering programmes with two closely related species.And are established on Mangere and South East islands in the Chatham group.
The Kokako is an endangered wattlebird unique to New Zealand.Also in the same family are the saddleback and now extinct huia.The South Island Kokako (orange wattles)is thought to be extinct.The north island subspecies (blue wattles)is scattered on the mainland and offshore islands.It inhabits thick forest,preferring to run and hop through the canopy because of weak flight.It is reknown for its melodious and haunting song.
The black stilt,found only in New Zealand,is the worlds rarest wading bird.Once widespread throughout New Zealand,changes to their environment and predation has resulted in the stilts becoming an endangered species.They are now restricted to South Canterburys Mackenzie Basin.The department of conservation has an intensive management programme to prevent further decline in numbers.
Adult birds are common around New Zealand coastal waters with breeding colonies on many small islands and some headlands-notably Cape Kidnappers,Muriwai,and Farewell Spilt.On leaving the nest,most immature gannets migrate across the Tasman,spending two or three years around Australias eastern and southern coastline before returning to New Zealand.
The wrybill,endemic to New Zealand,is the only bird in the world to have a beak that curves side-ways.This right-curving bill is used to probe under stones or to sweep the surface of estuarine mud.Wrybill breed on shingle river beds in the South island.During the winter they migrate to harbours and estuaries mainly in the North island.About half the population winters in the Firth of Thames.
By 1885,this endemic forest dweller had vanished from the North Island and all offshore islands except Little Barrier Island due to predation and habitat loss.Since 1980,they have been transferred to Tiritiri Matangi Is,Kapiti Is,Mt Bruce Wildlife Centre And Karori Wildlife Sanctuary,with a total population around 3,000(2005).Stitchbirds feed on nectar,small fruits and insects and nest in tree holes.
